violinist, a certified hypnotherapist,
Microsoft
Systems Engineer and a
black belt in the Martial Arts
and
has also written a screen play entitled, “Hal.”
The screenplay is about an old jazz pianist,who’s
suffering from Alzheimer’s in a nursing home.
“My mother passed away a year and a half ago from
the disease, and I know there are a lot of actors’
parents who are currently suffering from Alzheimer’s,
explained Rhee, who is currently shopping her
movie script.

When asked has it been easy to succeed in
Hollywood? She responded this way,
“Very, very difficult. The industry concentrates
on the things I don’t do,” explained Rhee.
“For example, speaking English without an accent.
They don’t care about what I can do
as an artist like playing the violin, martial arts
and acting. These skills are all secondary.
The first thing they ask is, ‘do you have an
America or Asian accent?’” she said.
Rhee is of Korean descent.For the full story visit:
